Sometimes their staff don’t seem aware of the promotions they’re running but there aren’t many other places to go. It’s okay, I just go for the £1 drinks and then wonder why I agreed to this. The bongos bingo was amazing though.

Having been left in a position where, 1 day before a 40th birthday bash, we had no venue due to the recent floods in Shrewsbury, Grant and his team came to our rescue. They made last minute arrangements with staff to enable our party to go ahead and their venue. The Cavern within the Cellars at the Buttermarket was fantastic! The staff incredibly helpful and accommodating and great fun too! The night was a huge success. I cannot thank Grant and his team enough for the support they gave myself and my family, and helping us to celebrate my sisters 40th birthday in style! Thank you team Butters!!

The staff at the buttermaret are rude and very arrogant. Drinks are expensive and the lighting sucks too, no actual need for flashing lights that affected me majorly.

Alicemarieh2019, Thanks for taking the time to review us. We're disappointed and surprised to learn of your recent experience and would very much like to discuss this with you. I have contacted you privately but had no response so again our details are: grant@thebuttermarket.co.uk Please do get in touch. We feel our drinks prices are fair, appropriate and in line with other local venues - we regularly compare our prices to ensure this. We're sorry too that you didn't like our state of the art lighting instalment, having recently undergone a large investment we thought it would cater to everybody's tastes but perhaps this is not the case. We would love to hear more about your experience so please get in touch with us. Thanks again for taking the time to review us.

I and a gang of my good pals had our first experience of Bongo Bingo last night and it was a, never to be forgotten, bight out. So much fun, loads of dancing in a great venue. The staff were all fabulous, really friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend anyone to have a go at Bongo's Bingo !! It's most definitely not just for girls either and we were a really mixed age group and all enjoyed it as much as each other. Well done to team Buttermarket, you wre awesome!

I can't thank The Buttermarket enough as we held a charity fundraiser here last night and it went unbelievably well. We had such great feed back from people saying that they absolutely loved the look of the place and that the food/drinks that they were served was really great. The atmosphere was fantastic with great floorspace, soundsystem and screen/ lighting. Organising seemed a breeze due to Grant & Ryans huge help in making sure we had everything we needed beforehand,and during,the event. We were constantly kept up to date with what was happening, so a huge weight lifted! I'll definitely be coming back for more!
